Queen Elizabeth can add comedy to her list of many talents. Her Majesty recently showed off her sense of humor during a solo appearance in London.
On Wednesday evening, the monarch visited the Royal Institute of International Affairs to present an award to Sir David Attenborough and Julian Hector, head of the BBC Natural History Unit, for their work on the Blue Planet II series.
According to People, she made sure to sign the visitors’ book during the event, but not without asking a very important (and ironic) question.
“What’s the date?” she asked Chatham House director Dr. Robin Niblett. When he responded, she added, “Well, of course I know what the date is!”
